The possibility of hiring a private firm to operate a new minimum-security prison on the site of the old Kaiser iron mine at Eagle Mountain is being considered by the state of California, according to Michael Badstubner of the Department of Corrections. He said the new facility--which would use some of the buildings at the abandoned Riverside County mine--would be leased, fenced and operated by the Management & Training Corp. of Ogden, Utah, and would be used to house and retrain released offenders who violate their parole. The parole violators would be sent to the Eagle Mountain facility for up to six months instead of returning them to prison or regular jails, Badstubner explained.
